Giving It Up.jpg


Jolene "Jo" Miller has been panting over her crush for years. He's everything she wants: a gentle giant with kick-ass ambition and a rock-hard body that she's dying to ride. The problem is, she's stuck in his friend zone due to one embarrassing reason - she's a virgin.

Jo's crush has no interest in popping her cherry. She'll need to take some drastic measures to get her crush's attention, and Jo has the perfect candidate to punch her v-card.

Kevin Harris is an unapologetic manwhore. With his panty-melting smile and chiseled body, he has his choice of tits and ass. His motto: hit 'em hard and leave them aching for more. Relationships aren't his thing, and they never crossed his mind until he met Jo. She's everything Kevin doesn't know he wants. She makes him tingle, and not just below the belt. But Jo's not into it, she's the only girl who doesn't want to ride the Harris express. They're just friends until Jo asks him to help her with some sexual education.

One kiss, one taste, he's hooked. Now Kevin has to convince Jo that he's the perfect man for her. He craves being a permanent fixture not only in her bed, but in her life. Will she give him the chance?

Warning: This sexy romance novella contains a fed-up virgin who thinks she knows what she wants, and a reformed bad boy guiding her down a kinky path.

This is a standalone story with a HEA and NO cheating.

My Review - I gave this 5 stars

Wow - this is both fun, with some lovely touches of humour, steamy and was so full of emotion it made me cry! This is a well written, easy to read book that was different enough to make it stand out from more run of the mill romance stories.

The book is really well written, the characters well rounded and the plot was good. The book had a steady pace and neither dragged nor jumped around to much. There were enough other characters included to fill out the book, and we got enough background story on the hero and heroine that we could understand them. Alternating 1st person POV's also made it easier to know and care for the main characters.

Kevin and Jo are both very likable and 'real' characters. The connection between them is really believable, and incredibly hot. The authors style is really easy to read, the dialogue was not only natural but was funny too. My only issue was the use of c**t and t**t as nouns because these are two words I really don't like. They were only used a couple of times though so it didn't spoil the book for me. I also got the impression that the author was trying to avoid using the same word repeatedly and this was why she occasionally used them - which I can appreciate.

I'll be honest, this was one of several advanced review copy books I signed up for recently and I had almost felt under pressure to get this read and reviewed in time. HOWEVER I thoroughly enjoyed reading this book, it wasn't a chore in the slightest. In fact it was a real pleasure and I will definitely be looking for more books by this author.
